    I have missed oats in my cookies, but because I was always sick when I ate them, I stopped. Might be worth another try. I have much appreciation to you and the watchdogs of the world. THANK YOU!

    I just gave a talk to a women’s group yesterday and this EXACT issue came up in discussion. I talked about the fad dieters and how GF food production has been the largest increase in new products every year for the last 10 years… that companies are jumping on the band wagon to cash in, but not with the real issues taken seriously. There was a good discussion of how it has helped in someways for the variety of products available, but also hurts in that now we have to check EVERYTHING in even more detail to really know if it is safe. Thanks Gluten Dude and GF Watchdog.

    Dude, if you think oats are naturally gluten free, you should read this:

      Interesting read…thank you for sharing it. I do know that some celiacs simply cannot eat ANY oats. This explains why.

      I was diagnosed back in the day when oats were still completely on the forbidden list, and I still will not eat oats, no matter how they are labeled. Nothing I’ve read has convinced me that even uncontaminated oats are worth the risk. Seriously…. for oatmeal? Cereal? There are plenty of other options. It’s not worth it. I’ve always thought the addition of oats was more about sales and marketing than celiac safety.

    What I don’t understand is how flax is safe when it’s grown in the same fields as barley and wheat – like oats. How could it possibly be uncontaminated when oats so clearly have a problem?

      I am not sure I am understanding your question. Did I miss something? Where did someone say that flax was safe if grown next to barley and wheat?

    This is great! I’ve had so many people ask me if I’ve tried the “gluten free” cheerios, and of course I know better. 😉 I stay away from all oats, even those that claim to be gluten free. Have never had any luck with them. I appreciate your blog so much- you are a trusted source.

    This article makes made me smile when all I really felt like doing on discovering I couldn’t eat my favourite ‘wheat free’ oats was crying…incidentally, this next song is also how I feel when walking down the supermarket aisle trying to find certified gluten free foods…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccenFp_3kq8
